Symposium on physical activity of people with physical disabilities

SDHI is hosting a mini-symposium on 30 April 2012, 11-15:30 with speakers from Chicago, St Louis/Atlanta, Glasgow and Dundee on ‘Understanding and promoting physical activity of people with disability’. The focus of the brief presentation will be on physical activity in community environments. The aim is to examine the state of the science in this area and to identify new research questions and ideas. Presentations will cover psychosocial and environmental determinants of physical activity engagement for people with physical disabilities (e.g. Stroke, spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis). The half day event will be held at the University of Dundee, Dalhousie Building. Our Webinar technology will allow us to broaden audience participation to a wider, international group. If you have a specific research interest in this area, please contact Thilo Kroll or Jacqui Morris or register for the event with Fred Comerford fac1@ st-andrews.ac.uk
